George Pérez's Sirens Is Boom's Biggest Original Comics Launch To Date

Boom has slowly been adding to their top name creative lists over the last couple of years. Mike Carey, Paul Jenkins, Brian Stelfreeze, the return of Mark Waid, JG Jones and Grant Morrison are all on board. And that also included George Pérez launching his new comic, Sirens.

Originally announced as She-Devils at last year's Baltimore Comic-Con, then changed to George Pérez's Sirens, the series will launch in September. Pérez will write and draw it, and it's being promoted as the "ultimate George Pérez" series bringing in all sorts of influences from Witchblade to CrossGen to Wonder Woman.

We're looking at huge cast of characters, female leads, plenty of panels per page, and a sprawling cosmic epic scale.

Yes, a bit like that.

I have been told that orders from last Monday's Final Order Cut-Off have meant it's Boom's biggest original series launch, beating Waid's Irredeemable and the rest, rising from 18,000 hitting 26,000 with FOC.

It might help that George Pérez's first national signing tour for a series launch, with participating retailers being required to order large numbers of an exclusive variant cover.

But the first place you'll be able to snag a copy of George Pérez's Sirens #1 will be at Baltimore Comic-Con.

If you want.
